5.0 out of 5 stars Not just a regular FPS, February 21, 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars

This review is from: Syndicate - Playstation 3 (Video Game)
Many gamers wonder... what?? ANOTHER FPS?? WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?? What happened to the old Syndicate??

Admittedly, this is the nail to the coffin for the old style Syndicate that we enjoyed in our childhoods. But I am also glad they evolved to make something different.

At first glance, yes it is an FPS. (WHAT?? I rather play MW3 or BF3... ??) Hold your horses, the emphasis is different.

The campaign is fun but is not the real point of the game. This game is made for multiplayer. And the producers made sure to make this game different from the regular FPS.

First off, Co-op campaign mode. This is admittedly fun, and make up a large chunk of the whole game. It is well designed and very entertaining, with its own storyline. It is very hard to find a game with good co-op campaign.

Second, multiplayer online feels very different from run and gun. Teamwork is very important if you want your team to win. I shall not say too much to repeat what online reviewers are already saying, but that is the direction the game is heading.

Overall, it plays more like Left4Dead than Call of Duty. So, no, it is "not another FPS". Many people who had negativity towards the game changed their minds after trying the multiplayer demo.

So do not judge this game too fast. Try it/rent it/play the demo if you are not sure. You might actually enjoy it.

Spot on.

If you like cyberpunk settings (like myself, I´m a cyberpunk junkie) you will love the setting, the multiplayer is really nice, as you rank up you´ll unlock new functions in your DART-6 chip.
If you have it on PS3, add me, you can get trophies for creating a syndicate: arkard_0 (the 0 is a zero)
